Issue Date: August 2017

1. Introduction
This Traffic Management Plan sets out how all traffic is managed on site. It:
 identifies hazards and risks caused by vehicles (including mobile plant) on site,
 summarises mandatory controls in place to eliminate and/or reduce the hazards/risks as far as
practicable,
 includes how the Knauf APAC Safety Standards apply on site,
 includes controls to meet all legislative compliance requirements.

This plan applies to anyone on site who:


 drives any kind of vehicle (including cars, light vehicles, forklifts, loaders, trucks) on site,
 is a passenger in any kind of mobile plant on site,
 is a pedestrian on site.

Key information from the traffic management plan:


 forms the basis of induction/training for all workers and contractors,
 is provided to visitors.

2. Consultation
The plan has been developed through consultation with the Health and Safety Committee and operators of
forklifts and other mobile plant. Where possible the site has also consulted with relevant contractors.
[Site will need to ensure this process occurs and then remove this comment]

3. Types of Traffic
The following types of traffic are present on site.

4.6. Intersection Controls


Unless signage/marking on site indicates otherwise, the rule is:

That means
 Pedestrians give way to mobile plant
 All mobile plant gives way to trucks

Exceptions to this include:

at least 3m or 5m [depending on size, delete ] from a forklift.

If you need to talk to the mobile plant operator, you MUST SIGNAL THEM TO leave the cab of the mobile
plant completely.

The exclusion zone ensures a person is not struck by a forklift or from their load if it falls.

6.3. Pedestrian Walkways

6.3.1. Designated Walkways


Where possible, walkways have been provided for walking around the site. Where walk ways have been
designated, it is mandatory to use them.

Gates and corrals are installed in a number of areas where pedestrians need to cross mobile plant areas.
Pedestrian (“Zebra Crossings”) walkways are also used to cross vehicle roadways.

Pedestrians are not to use mobile devices while walking.

6.3.2. Rules for Vehicles and Mobile Plant Drivers at Pedestrian Crossings
 When a pedestrian has moved onto a crossing, they have the right of way
 You must not park your vehicle on the crossing or in an area that obscures the view of pedestrians
or other road users.

6.3.3. Rules for Pedestrians at Pedestrian Crossings


 Wait until traffic has stopped before you start crossing.
 You do not have the right-of-way over other traffic until you actually step onto the crossing.

Never step onto the crossing if this would cause a driver to brake or swerve suddenly.

6.3.4. Temporary Closures of Pedestrian Walkways


If a walkway has to be temporarily closed (e.g. for plant maintenance), the following steps must be followed:
1. A Take 5 or other relevant risk assessment format must be completed for the job
2. The part of the walkway being worked on must be clearly closed off (e.g. with cones, temporary
barriers, or signs)
3. A safe alternative route for pedestrians must be clearly marked out
4. The person or people doing the work must clearly communicate with those affected (eg through
toolbox meetings).

6.4. Segregation of Pedestrians From Vehicles


Where practicable, walkways are segregated by structural barriers or bollards. [Modify diagram if not
applicable on site]

6.5. Pedestrians Walking Through Vehicle Areas (e.g. Restricted Areas)


Pedestrians are never permitted in the following areas:
 List
 List

Pedestrian access is restricted in the following areas:


 List
 List
Entry to these restricted areas is only permitted with prior approval from the relevant supervisor or manager
who will decide and advise what additional control measures are required.

In all other areas where vehicles are present, in addition to the other requirements listed in this plan, the
following communication guidelines apply:
 Establish radio communication (if applicable to the area)
 Use hand signals and wait for positive confirmation from the vehicle driver that it is safe to walk
before entering the area.

6.6. Stocktake and Checking Stock


When counting or checking stock anywhere on site, the location of the stock counter must be clearly marked
using a road cone at open ends of the row (both ends if the row is open at both ends).

If the stock counter has accessed the area using a forklift, the forklift may be parked at one end of the row as
a marker and a cone used at the other open end.

7. Forklifts and Wheel Loaders


7.1. Purchasing/ Leasing of Forklifts and Wheel Loaders
The purchasing, hiring or leasing of forklifts or wheel loaders is conducted in
consultation with the Regional Safety manager APAC. A plan for ongoing
maintenance is also established as part of the procurement decision.

Prior to commissioning, vehicles undergo testing and verification. The relevant area supervisors and
Department Managers are responsible for ensuring this occurs.

7.2. Pre-operation Inspection


Forklift and wheel loader operators must inspect and document (either electronic or in writing) a check that
key safety features are working prior to the use of the vehicle at each shift.

If a forklift/wheel loader operator deems that any safety features are not working, the operator shall:
 Park the vehicle in a safe location (e.g. designated parking zone);
 Remove the key (where applicable);
 Place an “Out of Service” tag on the forklift, and
 Notify the Supervisor and Maintenance [modify if process different on site].

7.3. Truck Drivers’ or Contractors’ Use of Forklifts

Only imbedded contractors are permitted to use forklifts and loaders on site. Where other contractors are to
use forklifts or wheel loaders on site, the following conditions apply:
 The contractor approval process will identify if forklifts/wheel loaders are to be used;
 Approval for use will come from the Site Manager.
 As one of the many checks required to approve the contractor before commencing work , a check shall
be made that the contractor holds a valid certificate of competency and a copy retained by the site, and
 The site traffic management rules shall be communicated to the contractor as part of the site induction.

7.4. Attachments
When an attachment is fitted to a forklift, the dynamic and operating characteristics may change, making it
necessary to re-rate the forklift capacity and restrict some operating controls.

Attachments have rated capacities. Attachments are regularly inspected/certified through preventative
maintenance, work place inspections, and Vault reminders. [site to modify as appropriate]

Separate load capacity data plates for each attachment are fitted to the forklift, usually near the other load
plates. These set out the revised forklift capacity for all operations and lifting points of the attachment.

Only use attachments on forklifts displaying the relevant load capacity data plate and make sure the
attachment is secured correctly and safely.

7.5. Stability
If driving with a raised load or a raised empty load carriage a forklift may become dangerously unstable.
Forklifts must be driven with tynes fully lowered whenever practicable.

7.6. Maintenance
Forklifts and wheel loaders are maintained in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications. Forklifts
and wheel loaders are included in the site’s established preventative maintenance schedule and are only to
be serviced by a suitably trained person [site to modify e.g. if outsourced].

Maintenance of forklifts and wheel loaders conducted on site is only to be undertaken in nominated
maintenance areas. These are isolated from traffic areas. [Site to modify if nominated areas don’t exist].

7.7. Forklifts Operating Near Car Parks [delete if not applicable]


No forklift is allowed to access any car park. Forklifts using the roadway near the visitors’ car park (e.g. car
park by reception) should stay clear of any parked vehicles. Conversations between forklift operators and
car drivers (even when both are in their own vehicle) is not permitted.
